[image]Nicaraguan Volcanoes - Provided by the SeaWiFS Project, NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center, and ORBIMAGE
Smoke can be seen streaming from the vicinity of Nicaragua's Masaya volcano in this SeaWiFS image. Another smoke-like feature can be seen further north (perhaps originating at the San Cristobal volcano complex). The smoke plumes are set against the highly productive waters in the upwelling region known as the Costa Rica Dome. Sensor: OrbView-2/SeaWiFS. Data Start Date: 2/14/00.

[image]SeaWiFS: Productive Pacific off Central America - Provided by the SeaWiFS Project, NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center, and ORBIMAGE
This SeaWiFS image of Central America was collected on November 12, 2001. Along the southern edge of the image you can see the clouds of the inter-tropical convergence zone. North of the clouds, various shades of green in the water result from dense populations of phytoplankton which thrive in persistent upwelling regimes in the area such as the Costa Rica Dome. The Costa Rica Dome is a large area west of Costa Rica where the thermocline comes very near to the sea surface...

During the first week and a half of October 2007, frequent heavy rains spawned by a persistent trough of low pressure stretched across the northwestern Caribbean, leading to floods and mudslides in several countries. The torrential rains were responsible for at least 47 fatalities in Haiti in villages north of the capital, said the AFP wire service on October 14. The poor island nation is especially vulnerable to mudslides due to deforestation in its mountainous regions...

The SeaWiFS instrument aboard the SeaStar satellite has been collecting ocean data since 1997. By monitoring the color of reflected light via satellite, scientists can determine how successfully plant life is photosynthesizing. A measurement of photosynthesis is essentially a measurement of successful growth, and growth means successful use of ambient carbon.Dark blue represents warmer areas where there is little life due to lack of nutrients, and greens and reds represent cooler nutrient-rich a...
